Podcast Ep. 119: What is Fruitful Vine Ministry (Mitch and Dan)

My cohost Dan Stegeman and I sit down together to discuss the history, the purpose and the impact of the first ten years of Fruitful Vine Ministry. Did you know the name comes from Genesis 49:22-24( NIV)? Joseph is a fruitful vine, a fruitful vine near a spring, whose branches climb over a wall. With bitterness archers attacked him; they shot at him with hostility.

We also discuss the encouragement this provides for those of us who live with the burden of a lost loved one. READ MORE
